 Dear Revitcitizens, I have a problem with wall intersections. You can see an exemple of that in the gif that I have attached. The problem is that: sometimes, the walls doesn't connect each other!!! and when I try to conect and make the nice corner between the 2 walls...and I finally put both toguether, and I save...THEN...next day they are again unconnected!!

Do you know what is going on? I will be very pleased if you can help me.

I try to become a Freak Revitcitizen as you!! but I am still on the way on...

Hi, Let me guess what could have happen. I suspect everytime you spin the model you must have accidentally move some of the walls or floor. That could have caused the wall to dislodge itself to adjust to it new position. Try to lock or contraint those particular walls to make them DEAD!

You can make it alive again by disabling the constraint. Hope it solve your problem here.

Check your wall properties to see if they have the same materials etc, this could have a effect on the way they join with each other! See weather your walls snap is set to allow join or not! There are many reasons why this could happen.

I also noticed that you have a curtain wall connecting with the walls. It is most probably the curtain wall interfering with the connection. Its best to set your curtain wall to disallow join. because when a curtain wall wants to join with a wall it also wants to cut into it! This is your best bet at the moment!

Goodluck. This site will help you become a quick learner!

also try your "edit wall joins" command. that will allow you to cycle through different possibilities. good luck!!

Hi Toons,

Any luck with your alive wall problem? I have a look at your attached photo. I suspect you have placed the door flushing with the wall that caased the problem. There is no wall left to interect with the other wall. Try this. Click on the wall and move it 1mm or 50mm or 100mm from the effected wall. I think it will solve the problem. You don't have to add another small wall to potch it up!

Uff...no yet, no yet...When I move the wall, the to walls join, but when I save the file and I open later again...then...The corner is not there again!!!!

But I will see..if I found a good solution for that I will say to you.

I would not suggest editing wall profiles unless its the only way to achieve a particular height stepping of the wall.  Please avoid doing this at all costs as it can become very annoying later down the track.

 

Do you have worksets enabled on this file?  If so, are the two walls in different worksets?  You'll find two joining walls of different worksets that are not both editable in a file sometimes have difficulties joining.  Solution, make them part of the same workset.

 Alternative if this still isn't working (never had that happen before then), right click on each wall end point and disallow wall join, drag the walls to where you want them to finish so they butt into each other, then use join geometry so cleanup and it removes the extra linework.

 

HTH.

Thank everyone!

I have got solution for the 2 walls I have shown before. What I have done is: disallow the join. And drag the ends. So when the 2 wall was toguether again I joined toguether again. And..this works!!!

But, but....this solution doesn't work for the facade I am showing you now.... Sad  !! We are using worksets, but the 2 walls are in the same workset...so...I don't know what to do...The problem with this 2 walls is that ones I disallow the join, the 2 walls are closer, like you see now in the picture. But I cannot drag the end. The wall doesn't move. And now, if I try to do that, Revit crash!. So it is really hopeless. And I need to join the walls because I think that if I don't join the walls, the insulation and every layer of the wall doesn't look good in the corner...

The facade have a lot of windows. Every window is a type in several families. I don't know...may be the windows are the problem?

Any suggestion?

Can't really make much out of that picture?

Nonetheless, i think i know what you mean.  Use your paint tool to paint the end of the wall with the same finish material as the rest of the facade to have it display the same.
